Taylor Report - US-Canada losing their grip on Haiti narrative

1 week 4 days ago
The US and its partners have been trying to smear Haitian popular resistance to austerity plans and foreign troops. When fuel prices doubled overnight people took to the streets and there were a number of blockades. Ottawa and Washington blamed "gangs" and began to contemplate military incursions. But Haitians won't accept intervention and it is clear from debate at the UNSC that many states do not agree any longer that Washington-run operations are sacrosanct. Kim Ives puts the matter very clearly. Hopeful signs at the UN.

Sea Change Radio - Wood Pellets: The New Coal

1 week 4 days ago
Back in the 16th century, when England began to run out of trees, it started burning coal. And by 1700, most Brits were using coal as their main source of fuel. But then coal became scarce. To come full circle, today England is burning large amounts of wood again - much of it in the form of wood pellets from the US. Wood has somehow been designated as a renewable energy source since the Kyoto Protocol in 1992 and the repercussions have been devastating. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak to journalist Justin Catanoso, a journalism professor at Wake Forest University, about the dangers of this latest transition to a fuel source which is leading to deforestation and pollution. We learn about the wood pellet industry, manufacturing giant Enviva, and the wide-ranging problems caused by burning trees.

TUC Radio - Marilyn Waring: Our economic system assigns no value to peace and to the preservation of the environment – Archive ONE of TWO

1 week 5 days ago
Marilyn Waring’s work and inspiring life are described in a documentary film by Terre Nash. I’m bringing back the soundtrack of this film to support a debate on the unquestioned need for economic growth at all cost and on what course to take to end the war on Ukraine. At age 22 (in 1974) Marilyn Waring became the youngest member of the New Zealand Parliament. She chaired the prestigious Public Expenditures Committee and became familiar with the Gross Domestic Product system and decided to disclose its pathologies in a film, her teachings at AUT University in Auckland and really her life as a feminist economist. The film, “Who’s Counting” traces her quest to explore how the fate of women and of the earth are irrevocably tied up with the deadly pursuit of economic growth. Marilyn Waring was shocked and dismayed when she learned that all countries that are members of the UN are forced to keep their books and design their budgets under the system of National Income Accounting. This GDP system counts only cash transactions in the market and recognizes no value other than money. This means there is no value to peace and to the preservation of the environment.

The Children's Hour - Lungfish

1 week 6 days ago
This week on The Children's Hour, we learn about one of the most ancient animals to live on our planet, that is still alive today: Lungfish. Our guest, Dr. Irene Salinas studies lungfish at the University of New Mexicos Department of Biology. She will explain to us what lungfish are, and how they can survive both in the water, and on land for years. Lungfish not only breathe outside the water, they surround themselves in a cocoon while they are on land. Dr. Salinas has studied the cocoon and its amazing properties. Lungfish can regenerate all of their cells, including all their internal and external organs. The cocoon is full of anti-cancer properties, as well as other toxins that make predators not want to eat a slumbering lungfish out of water. Lungfish are ancient. They pre-date the dinosaurs on our planet, and their DNA is the longest of all creatures on Earth. We also have a book review from Nina on our Kids Crew of the latest in the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls: Young Changemakers. Mixed with great music, learn about the amazing lungfish with us this time on The Children's Hour.
